in the united states senate. so a friend of mine -- a friend of his told me yesterday that barney's active lobbying for the job may have hurt him. >> oh, that was clearly the first of the reasons. i don't know behind the scenes he may have given a tongue lashing to the governor behind closed doors. >> bill: right. is cowen saying that -- it's clear he is not going to run, right? >> that was one of the prerequisites that the governor laid down on the job, and cowen is very loyal to him. >> bill: so we know ed marky at least at this point is in. what is scott brown going to do? governor or senator? >> well there's scott brown and then really nobody else. >> bill: yeah. >> he's weighing his options. he has been around talking in the private sector see what he could get in terms of salary and deals. he has been through two very tough campaigns in the last several years. he faces another tough campaign here, and when he finishes this campaign in june he has to roll into 2014 where they are going to try to go at him again if he were to win for a full term. that's when kerry's t
united states senators. senator dick durbin from illinois and senator jeff merkley rising star from -- what am i saying? oregon. i knew it started with an o and igor volsky will be here from the center for american progress. thinkprogress here as he is every tuesday morning. the boy scouts may be coming out of their tent. you won't believe it. but first -- >> this is the "full court press." >> other headlines making news on this tuesday barbara walters, she fell and hurt herself over inauguration weekend and ended up in the hospital. turns out it was something bigger. abc reports it is a case of delayed childhood. the 83-year-old "view" cohost has the chickenpox. she never had it as a child. one in 10,000 adults go et it reach year. she's off work for several weeks and is not allowed visitors because she's still contagious. >> bill: it is scary when you get chickenpox as an older person, as a senior. >> how old is she? >> 83. >> how do you go 83 years and never have chickenpox? >> bill: did she ever have kids? >> i don't think she did. that's a good point. >> bill: because we know w
, to the united states senate. a longtime member of the senate club. he will be introduced by secretary of state hillary clinton. senator john mccain will also play a role. interesting because mccain has a very similar resume to john kerry but a very different political philosophy. last night with greta van sus traivan susteren he talked about serrie as secretary of indicate. >> reporter: john and i don't agree on a lot of issues but we have a relationship which was forged years ago, and so i have confidence that he will carry out the president's agenda and serve the president. >> reporter: mccain said he would not have selected john kerry to be secretary of state because they obviously have a very different philosophy. he does expect that kerry will be effective in carrying out obama's philosophy. martha: when they make these nominees they know they have some that will be easy, some are more heavy lifting. where does this one fall. >> reporter: john kerry is the least controversial of the ones coming up right now. 50% of independents would and most of the democrats would. if you were senator wo
in the united states senate for almost four years, so no, i don't think she's made a very good president. >> and finally, sir, according to a new book, president obama call called the widow of one of the people who died in benghazi, sean smith, the day after the attack and said, promise to avenge the deaths of americans. do you believe him? >> well, i'll take him as his word. but you know, that was another curious question i would like to ask secretary clinton is why when those bodies were coming home, she went up to tyrone woods' father and said we were going to bring this guy who created this video to justice. what happens what was that about? they're just trying to continue to perpetuate this false narrative. this wasn't caused by the fact that al-qaeda was on the rise. they're misleading the american public. >> thank you. >>> still to come, we're facing some of the coldest temperatures in this country. some scientists say it's due to global warming. plus, apple's shares plunging today and manti te'o admits he lied, so is he telling the truth now? try running four.ning a restaurant is
footsteps. >> he's a determined and effective representative of the united states. has been as a senator, will be as secretary. >> and things were cordial enough moments ago. senator mccain was still blasting clinton for her testimony yesterday. >> she really didn't answer any questions, her response to senator johnson about whether there was a spontaneous demonstration or not, saying it didn't matter, it didn't matter how these people died? that was stunning. that was really stunning. of course it matters. >> all right, let's dive right in and say good morning to our thursday political power. mark ginsburg, joi ann reed, ron reagan, and republican strategist susan del percio. it's great to have you all here. as we speak right now, the confirmation hearing of john kerry is taking place. started roughly after 10:00 a.m. and this is a big difference of what we saw yesterday, ironically enough, this is the senate committee that kerry technically still chairs, and he made a joke about that, saying it was pretty -- pretty interesting position to be on the soother side, and those esteemed sena
of massachusetts to be our new secretary of state is confirmed. >> reporting for duty. earlier today, the united states senate voted overwhelmingly to confirm senator john kerry as our next secretary of state. only three republican senators voted no. >> mr. cruz, no. mr. cornyn, no. mr. inhofe, no. >> john cornyn and ted cruz opposed john kerry's confirmation, and of course oklahoma senator james inhofe voted now. we should point out that senator inhofe is terrible at flying airplanes but great at denying the science of global warming there is no reason they should have voted against john kerry's confirmation. he is without a doubt the most qualified person to be our next secretary of state. john kerry has served on the senate foreign relations committee for, let's see, 28 years? in the last four as chairman, as has served four years of the united states navy including active duty in the vietnam war. he has run for president, kind of knows what is happening. and he also already has travelled the globe on behalf of the obama administration, helping mend strained relations with afghanistan and pak
of the great committees of the united states senate and it's the only major committee that i have served on since day one when i arrived in the senate in 1985. as you know, the committee carries special consequential responsibility with respect to the security of our nation and i think each and every one of you, for the serious considering that you give and have given to the challenges issues and for the remarkable cooperation that i have had as chairman of the committee, if confirmed, i look forward to continuing to work particularly closely with all of you. as we tackle some of the toughest issues and challenges that i have seen in the entire time i've served on this committee. and i particularly welcome the new members in that regard. i'm very grateful to president obama for nominating me and entrusting me with this important responsibility and i am particularly grateful to secretary clinton, senator mccain, and senator warren for their introductions of me just now. i will not take it personally that this may be the one item in washington that seems to unite democrats and republicans
. >> do you think, steve -- you sound optimist uk about gun control. do you believe the united states senate, which is run by democrats now, 55 controlled, 55 seats are democrat, will they pass a bill which the house will have to swallow? will they do something real that they can take to conference and possibly get signed by the president? because they've got to take the lead. the house ain't going to do it. >> i think if the president takes the lead and he takes the case to the country i think the senate will pass something. pat leahy is a great example of frankly the challenge here because he's from a state where people value their guns. but once hunters understand and then most hunters do understand that this isn't a threat to their ability to hunt, this is a threat to those people who hunt other people with assault weapons and kill dozens at a time very quickly if they want to. and it will get to the house. and the house, you know, is going to have a tough vote. by the way, chris, there's one other thing in this bill. it also bans rocket launchers and grenade launchers. >> i think
to know him. as well as the united states senate. he is on the farm bills and authored most of the authorization bills. clearly his decision is personal i'm sure. he is frustrated with washington, d.c. and members of both parties are frustrated with the gridlock. the republicans will nominate somebody in main street, but while georgia is the so-called red state, president obama was able to get more than 45% of the vote there. i assume that we are going have a credible democrat who will seek the party's nomination. >> it's interesting that the conservative was afraid that even more conservative republicans may challenge him and he decided time to move on. let's move on ourselves. jeb bush the former florida governor cowrote a piece of the "wall street journal" calling for comprehensive immigration reform among other things, writing this. some tell us makers are calling for piece meal changes such as issuing visas or conferring legal status of immigrants who were brought in as children. congress should avoid such quick ficks and commit itself instead to comprehensive immigrati
is one of the most likable and congenial men i've ever known in the united states senate, and i think chocolate agree. >> something rare, which is four democrats, four republicans, coming together. you all served years since senator schumer came to the other body, and the gang of eight started to come together. the friday after the election, senator lindsey graham gave you a call. on saturday morning. you saw him on your call sheet. you called him, and you said what? >> i said, "hi, linzy -- lindsey." that was wonderful, and he said he had talked to john mccain, and my heart went peter patter. -- pitter patter. there are different television shows, sunday morning talk shows. and we both said we were going to do it, and there we are. >> senator, you have gone back and forth. what made you decide to join it? >> i have always been for it, but i have always been concerned about border security, and i think with good reason. if you talk to the experts, there are still a number smuggled into united states that come in it from the border. there is huge violence. we have people on mountaintop
was called a nuclear option in the united states senate. a lot of people don't appreciate how important it was for us to get that done. and chuck schumer and i and others and dick durbin were involved in a bipartisan effort to avert that. thanks to the cooperation of our two leaders we were able to do that. there is a desire for bipartisanship in this. i think we can show the country and the world that we're capable of tackling this issue and moving a terrible issue that has to be resolved in a bipartisan basis and i believe the majority of the american people support such an effort and i want to thank my colleagues again and the ever congenial senator schumer. >> now we'll have even more congenial senator durbin. >> i want to thank my colleagues. john mccain, thanks, we're been down this road before, but i feel very good about our chances this time. chuck, thank you for your leadership on this, i'm sure that marco and bob and lindsey and i understand that you've been the force behind, he's the glue and you're the force and it's worked. we've come to this moment and here we are facing t
and really defanning, they sent over this horrible legislation. we stopped it all in the united states senate. but yeah, so the good news is that strong e.p.a. can really make progress. now, a lot of the special interests, the big oil the big coal, they'll scream and yell. and sue. but the fact is it's clear that the clean air act covers carbon pollution. now, the rest of it are smaller pieces like agriculture and about 7% of the emissions. and about 11% come from buildings. and i'm going to try to go after that 11%. in a good way. by essentially putting out sort of a revolving fund, people are older homes big landlords with older buildings can borrow, interest-free, to make these homes energy efficient. that's going to save a lot of pollution. it is going to stop a lot of pollution. i think we can actually do something here. now, we have a lot of tremendous amount of opposition. >> stephanie: yeah. and it is so surprising from the house republicans. senator, i could talk to you all morning. you have to tell me quickly about the line act before you go. there may be nothing else more important

the president of the united states who will unveil his views on a path forward. what this comes down to now is will these house republicans who have pandered to their intolerant tea party base, who have fed into the extremism of that tea party base, are they willing to stand up to the tea party and do what's right for america? we'll see whether they're able to amass the votes to get us forward. >> they might see this is amnesty. what would you say? >> well, you know what? i'm interested in solutions. i'm not interested in rhetoric. i'm not interested in finger pointing. i'm not interested in the old debates, the old sound bites. we need a solution that is fair and balanced. that secures our borders. that has tough, verifiable enforcement. but also provides a path to citizenship for those who are here and part of our economy. when you've got republican senators who are willing to support this, it's time for house republicans to support it as well. >> as you know, part of this plan that was put out and we got the details overnight, it promotes a guest worker program geared toward the needs of
to the united states supreme court by franklin roosevelt, liberal justice hugo black said, and i'm going to quote him right here for you. he said "there are absolutes in our bill of rights and they were put there on purpose by men who knew what words meant and meant their prohibitions to be absolutes." end quote. >> justice black said that in a very long lecture about the bill of rights at nyu law school in 1960. but in that lecture where justice black said there are absolutes, he very specifically said the second amendment is not one of them. he pointed out that the supreme court in a unanimous decision that included his vote, had already restricted the second amendment to not include the right to have a machine gun, or a sawed off shot gun, the favorite tools of bank robbers and gangsters at the time. and so crazy wayne was not standing on the liberalism of justice hugo black last night. he would have been upset to see his words manipulated by the lobbyists, who make sure that when mass murderers enter the shopping malls and areas, they will be able to fire as many bullets as possible
's and mortars to spontaneous demonstrations, that's a fundamental. the president of the united states as late as september 24th, two weeks later, did not acknowledge that this was an act of terror. >> and i have said many times, i take responsibility and nobody is more submitted to getting this right. >> madam secretary, you let the consulate become a death trap and that's national security malpractice. had i been president at the time and found that you did not read the cables from benghazi, did not read the cables from ambassador stevens, i would have relieved you of your post. >> this pandora's box, if you will, of weapons coming out of these countries in the middle east and north africa is the source of one of our biggest threats, there's no doubt that the algerian terrorists had weapons from libya. >> the american people deserve to know answers, and they certainly don't deserve false answers, and answers that were given the american people on september 15th by the ambassador of the united nations were false. i certainly did not know of my report that contradicted the ic talking points at
, that the united states government had absolutely nothing to do with this video. we absolutely reject its contents and message. america's commitment to religious tolerance goes back to the very beginning of our nati nation. senator, that's eight days after the attack, 14 days after the attack, the president himself is still blaming the video. all the evidence to the contrary from the president of libya, to our own state department watching in real-time. we knew that wasn't true. >> without question, without question, there was a political coverup. without question-- >> why, why do you think that is? >> well, i asked one question. i got one question he in towards the end of my period and i said, were we involved with selling, buying or procuring or transferring arms to turkey? i think arms have been sold out of libya to turkey and they're winding up in the hands of the syrian rebels. i think they did not want to draw attention to that and that may have been occurring, the cia annex. i don't have proof of this. no one's given me any information, i have no briefing to this, but there have been articl
, congressional republicans have held the full faith and credit of the united states of america hostage for political points and debates. instead of doing what congress has always done under both parties, allowing the government to pay the bills it has accrued. they decided to play a game of chicken with the global economy. reporter: paul ryan, we are told, is working on a budget plan that would balance within 10 years. it is expected that patty murray's idea of the budget will be quite different. but the bottom line is a lot of people who say we need the budget with this debt of $16 trillion are going, will be glad to get to the table and work on an actual budget speech you we will see how it turns out. mike emanuel, thank you very much be one a fox news weather alert. extreme winter weather is gripping parts of the south. arctic air and freezing rain expected from arkansas to the north carolina and south carolina area. dangerous driving conditions. up to a quarter inch of ice can accumulate. people in the upper midwest and northeast are wondering when the cold will end. another day of
